He gave us an imaginative and innovative approach to research and many new scientific concepts. He gave countless students throughout the world a means of understanding physiology and he gave many of us exciting research careers. We will miss him tremendously, but he will remain in our memories as a shining example of the very best in humanity. Arthur Guyton was a real hero to the world, and his legacy is everlasting.

Guyton For his imaginative and innovative research For his dedication to education For showing us the excitement and joy of physiology And for serving as an inspirational role model Arthur C. Arthur C. Guyton in an automobile accident on April 3, , stunned and saddened all who were privileged to know him.
Arthur Guyton was a giant in the fields of physiology and medicine, a leader among leaders, a master teacher, and an inspiring role model throughout the world. Billy S. Guyton, a highly respected eye, ear, nose, and throat specialist, who later became Dean of the University of Mississippi Medical School, and Kate Small- wood Guyton, a mathematics and physics teacher who had been a missionary in China before marriage.
During his formative years, Arthur enjoyed watching his father work at the Guyton Clinic, playing chess and swapping stories with William Faulkner, and building sailboats one of which he later sold to Faulkner. He also built countless mechanical and electrical devices, which he continued to do throughout his life. His brilliance shone early as he graduated top in his class at the University of Mississippi. He later distinguished himself at Harvard Medical School and began his postgraduate surgical training at Massachusetts General Hospital.
For those inventions he received a Presidential Citation. He returned to Oxford where he devoted himself to teaching and research at the University of Mississippi School of Medicine and was named Chair of the Department of Physiology in In he was named one of the ten out- standing men in the nation.
His research covered virtually all areas of car- diovascular regulation and led to many seminal concepts that are now an inte- gral part of our understanding of cardiovascular disorders, such as hypertension, heart failure, and edema. It is difficult to discuss cardiovascular physiology without including his concepts of cardiac output and venous return, negative interstitial fluid pressure and regulation of tissue fluid volume and edema, regulation of tissue blood flow and whole body blood flow autoregulation, renal-pressure natriuresis, and long-term blood pressure regulation.
Indeed, his concepts of cardiovascular regulation are found in virtually every major text- book of physiology. They have become so familiar that their origin is sometimes forgotten.
One of Dr. He used mathematical and graphical methods to quantify various aspects of circu- latory function before computers were widely available.
He built analog com- puters and pioneered the application of large-scale systems analysis to modeling the cardiovascular system before the advent of digital computers. As digital computers became available, his cardiovascular models expanded dramatically to include the kidneys and body fluids, hormones, and the autonomic nervous system, as well as cardiac and circulatory functions.
